FUND-RAISING: Overwhelmed by response

I would like to thank all the people who have supported me and given generously to the Birth Trauma Association for my half Ironman challenge, which I recently completed.

I have been overwhelmed by the positive response to my story and I know that the BTA is extremely grateful for all of the money donated, over £3,600 including Gift Aid.

The taboo topic of birth trauma has been widely discussed as a result of the article in the Gazette – fantastic support from our local paper.

We are a small town with big hearts and I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to fund-raise for such a fabulous organisation. Thank you.
